Emanuele Zanini appointed head coach of Turkey's men team
News from the National Federations

Istanbul, Turkey, August 9, 2013. Italian-born Emanuele Zanini was appointed head coach of Turkey men’s national team on Friday. The Italian mentor, born in 1965, who holds a degree in physical education from the University of Bologna, did previously lead Slovakia to their greatest results in history.  
Zanini was also an assistant coach and the physical trainer of Italy’s national team for two years with the group winning gold at the 1999 FIVB World League and European Championship to follow with bronze at the FIVB World Cup held that same year in Japan. One year later the “Azzurri” did continue their streak of success by winning the World League once more and claiming bronze at the Sydney Olympics. Zanini was named head coach of Slovakia’s national team in 2008 and spent four seasons with the group, winning twice the CEV Volleyball European League (in 2008 and 2011). Two years ago, under his guidance, Slovakia finished fifth at the EuroVolley, their best result ever.
Zanini was also active with many clubs in his native Italy, as well as in Austria and in Slovakia. He is set to continue his career at the helm of Turkey’s national team that will compete at the EuroVolley 2013 this coming September and will then move to France to mentor BEAUVAIS Oise in that country’s first division. Zanini, who is fluent in English and French, is also known for writing editorial feed for various Volleyball magazines and newspapers in his native country. He joins his countryman Massimo Barbolini who since a few months is working with Turkey women’s national team currently competing in the FIVB World Grand Prix.
